Quarantine Teaching


Living room, dining room,

gallery, breaking room,

Webex or ZOOM.

Talking to whom?


Bathroom or storeroom,

sunroom or cloakroom.

Never assume

that a restroom

or a balroom

can’t be a classroom.


Any room is

a good room

for knowledge to bloom.


Monday or Wednesday,

Thursday or Blursday

Every day’s a schoolday.

Except for Sunday

which will be a fun day

again someday

once this goes away.



Miss Homphone


Miss Homophone ate

eight oranges

and a pair of pears.


And with a brisk gait

she walked through the gate,

got into her car

and rode down the road.


This scene I have seen,

but I’m not allowed to say this aloud.
